Vera Neumann Scarves

Textile designer from the 1950's and 1960's, Vera Neumann is having a well deserved revival, most recently at Anthropologie in NYC where her work is currently on display. Designsponge today has gorgeous and interesting photos of this exhibit that includes some screens made to print her work.

Today I show just a little taste of her famous signature, but I promise more to come this weekend, as I will post more from my own Vera collection. It is a treasure trove for any graphic artist or textile designer. Her work is so inspiring!

In the meantime, you may want to check out these scarves from an earlier post on this blog.

I adore Vera! My dad was pals with a Vera sales rep back in the 0's and my Mom - the lucky perfect size 8!! She had so many really gorgeous Vera dresses!

I have have quite a few scarves and one dress myself!

That's not me selling Veras--
gosh, I can't part with my Vera scarves (or placemats, napkins, shirts etc.)
I'm the one AT the Rose Bowl WEARING the scarves!

(I prefer to make a big $3 Vera discovery at some out of the way charity thrift store)
